    Re: Determining the center of the cocked hat

    The technique is best with gyro error with little randon error, but will be the best fix you can get with magnetic also. In the case of small variation area and resonable deviation error, you may not do any correction. The techinque will work to give the best fix and position possible. The triangle will tighten and give a quick resonable position without previous CDMVT. correction I have used it with 15W VAR area uncorrected. try it quick and easy. Use the position as the two closer well spread, for the fix and the error you find for the next round of bearings.
    If the triangle is still large repeat the procedure. DO NOT use the center of the triangle as your position.NO,NO,NO, Byron
